Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon 2019 (Margaret River)

The 2019 Moss Wood Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep brick red hue, bright condition. Immediate impression is of ripe blue and black fruits combining blueberry, black currant, liqueur cherries and red currant and just a touch of violet-like floral and musk notes. There are also complex, earthy notes of olive, licorice, leather, pencil shavings and nutmeg-like spice plus a soft oak background of light tarry, toastiness. The concentration is such it has a distinctive inky note, something that was a big part of the 1979 vintage.

Dark fruits are also strong on the palate where there are concentrated black currant, blueberry, licorice flavours, or perhaps plum pudding and probably a result of the tiny morsel of Petit Verdot, combine with a full body to balance a firm acidity and tannin. The finish combines a both soft toasty oak and Cabernet’s classic, tar and cedar notes.

"Bright deep crimson in colour and highly complex clearly showing the cooler vintage thanks to a cedary, leafy lift, with red and blackcurrant fruits sitting just behind. Great poise and elegance on the palate with bright, radiant fruits, certainly more mid weight in style than usual fleshed out by violet and crunchy red currant flavours. Already delicious to drink, tannins are supple with excellent persistence and length which show the wines class if in a more lightly framed and earlier drinking style. An old school Moss Wood claret that whispers rather than shouts."

There is no doubt the 2019 vintage Cabernet Sauvignon sits right near the top of the Moss Wood quality tree and we have high expectations for its cellaring. Given its concentration and structure, courtesy of the long slow season and also the relatively small crop, we anticipate it will need at least a decade to show some bottle development. Somewhere between 10 and 15 years should see some softening of the tannins and the development of the tar and cedar characters. However, full maturity will require at least 25 years cellaring and after which it should live well beyond 40 years of age.

The fruit was hand-picked and delivered to the winery where it was sorted and destemmed into small open tanks. Each was seeded for primary fermentation with multiple yeast strains and hand-plunged, 3 times per day. Temperatures were controlled to 32°C.

After 15 days on skins the wine was drained and pressed to stainless steel tank, where it completed malolactic fermentation. In May 2019 the various batches were racked to French oak barriques, of which 15% were new.

In October 2021, all barrels racked and blended in stainless steel and fining trials were carried out to assess tannin balance. None of the treatments improved the wine, so it remained unfined. It was then sterile filtered and bottled on 2nd November 2021.
